Two Man Tempest

The Pocket Theater’s Two Man Tempest, though ambitious, fails to take the viewer by storm.
Two Man Tempest parodies Shakespeare’s classic story of magic, romance, and revenge. The 45-minute show, performed by Kendall Uyeji, Danny Lacker, and audience volunteers, is clearly the result of a lot of hard work. It features several rapid costume changes, puppetry, rap, and water guns, and leaves the actors visibly drenched in sweat before the end of Act 2. Despite the effort, these technical elements do little to make the show enjoyable. The script doesn’t pick up the slack. The jokes are weak, and they aren’t helped by the actors’ delivery or inability to stay in character.
